We all know all too well that relationships take work. Put some effort in by spending quality time together, strengthening that bond by not watching telly, and falling asleep halfway through the show, and experiencing new things together. Designating one night a week a “date night” if you will, is a relationship longevity essential.
Unfortunately however, when you do this for a while, you end up running out of ideas, places to go, and things to do.
But have no fear, it’s all about perspective. Here are some twists on somewhat traditional date night plans with tips on matching outfits.
1. Picnic in the Park
Now if you’re impartial to a few mouthwatering delectables, how about a food tasting picnic date?
Bring on the finger food. Cake pops are a great option; fruit skewers are a healthy alternative.
Add an eclectic twist on the traditional picnic by having it under the stars. Bring an extra blanket for added romance and good old fashioned warmth, or have an indoor picnic on your living room floor.
A backyard scavenger hunt picnic is more of an active take on the idea. Hide relationship memorabilia to hunt for and reminisce.
Dress the part in a floral midi dress that screams spring, add a cardigan just in case it’s chilly, colourful flats and big bright sunnies make the look pop.
2. Dancing ’till Dawn
Calling music lovers everywhere, dance the night away with your special someone, at your choice of outdoor concert or festival.
What better way to deepen that connection than moving as one to the beat of your favourite tunes?
If you’d like to go all out and add a twist to this particular date of choice, add glamping (the fancy version of camping) to your multi- day festival.
Alternatively, come up with your own goofy dance routine, design signs for your favourite band, or make an old school mix-tape to introduce your boo to your holy grail tracks.
A band tee and studded booties pair well with a high waisted pleather skirt (tuck the tee in for that hour-glass figure). Add plenty of rocker worthy accessories including these stud detail shades.
3. Starry Eyed
Now stargazing doesn’t seem like the most innovative date idea, but bear with us, it’s about to get interesting.
How about a late night hike? Walk, talk, look up a few astronomical facts and impress your significant other by pointing out their constellation if at all visible.
If you are a bookworm at heart, try taking turns reading a book to each other and then spend an equal amount of time discussing it.
Dress for movement, but stay stylish. A pair of printed leggings and a T-shirt dress or jeggings, colorful trainers and an oversized shirt.
But don’t forget those specs, whether for reading or looking up to the heavens.
